under the seat, all you should need is a phillips or possibly even a flat head screwdriver...

and welcome

Why do you need a new battery so soon?
Have you checked the charging system is working?

No. The bike is just sitting in a parking lot, dead, and I dont have many tools or anything to screw around with it...so I think if I just swap the battery then it will start up and im outta there. thats the hope anyway.......another stupid question ..how does the seat come off? I saw the key release for the little back seat, but the main seat should slide off after the little seat is off ? I havent touched a bike in 10 yrs so i feel like an idiot but thanks again

Re: changing battery on cbr 1000 2009

it bolts on
pull up both rear corners of the seat and youll see possibly 2 5mm allen screws
then a 10mm socket and 1/4" driver or phillips screwdriver for battery post

All the tools you need will be in the toolkit under the rear seat.
You could also jump start it off another bike or car which would save you needing to remove the battery.

Re: changing battery on cbr 1000 2009

The battery access may be easy but the oil change doesn't at least not compared to older CBR's. Look under the sticky's or similar thread and you'll see the '08-'10 isn't easy for general maintenance compared to past CBRs.

Good luck.

IF thats the case Id bet its to make something else easier to get it...either way I was pleasantly surprised how easy it was....the honda dirt bikes were always far easier to work on than the other brands too. yr vs yr one might be easier than another, but vs the other brands Id say honda has the best ease of maintainence and ease to work on.
thanks for the info though !
